Brazil is starting to package medicine as candy so that children that have trouble swallowing pills or are just stubborn will be more likely to take it. I just see this as a gigantic accident waiting to happen; the first time some child OD’s on “candy” we’ll hear about this. In fact, as usual this reminds me of a Simpsons episode: they went to a candy convention and the sign outside read “Welcome Candy Convention Room 1! Also Candy-Shaped Rat Poison Convention Room 11.”
